About the Chef
Jean-Georges Vongerichten is one of the world’s leading chefs who consistently set new standards and define culinary perfection. From the outskirt of Strasbourg in Alsace, Jean-Georges was born in a family where his mother and grandmother prepared lunch for 50 employees every day. He developed a vision for his career after his Michelin 3-star dining experience on his 16th birthday. Soon he apprenticed in various Michelin 3-star restaurants in France which led him to a position at the Oriental Hotel in Bangkok. He then opened 10 restaurants around the world from 1980 to 1985.
Jean-Georges appeared in the New York dining scene in 1986. His empire now contains various types of cuisine, from bistro, Thai, steakhouse, to formal French, and all over the world from New York, Texas, Chicago, Las Vegas, to Bahamas, London, Paris, and Shanghai. He had even catered for the wedding of his landlord Donald Trump.
About the Restaurant
Located in the Trump International Hotel & Tower with a terrace overlooking Central Park, this restaurant already earned the highest rating from New York Times within three month of opening in 1997.
The restaurant is divided into two separate operations: a formal dining room Jean Georges and a more casual room Nougatine. The elegance of the formal dining room is well complemented by a modern French cuisine using top ingredients with influences from around the world.
